Trump to Sign Executive Order on Social Media on Thursday, WH Says

Trump to Sign Executive Order on Social Media on Thursday, WH Says

May 28, 2020   |   by James G. Dalton

President Donald Trump will sign an executive order on social media companies on Thursday, White House officials said after Trump threatened to shut down websites he accused of stifling conservative voices.

The officials gave no further details. It was unclear how Trump could follow through on the threat of shutting down privately owned companies including Twitter Inc. The company declined comment.

The dispute erupted after Twitter on Tuesday for the first time tagged Trump’s tweets about unsubstantiated claims of fraud in mail-in voting with a warning prompting readers to fact check the posts.

Separately, a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington on Wednesday upheld the dismissal of a lawsuit by a conservative group and right-wing YouTube personality against Google, Facebook, Twitter and Apple accusing them of conspiring to suppress conservative political views.

In an interview with Fox News Channel on Wednesday, Facebook’s Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg said censoring a platform would not be the “right reflex” for a government worried about censorship. Fox played a clip of the interview and said it would be aired in full on Thursday.

Facebook left Trump’s post on mail-in ballots on Tuesday untouched.

The American Civil Liberties Union said the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution limits any action Trump could take. Facebook and Google declined comment. Apple did not respond to a request for comment.

“Republicans feel that Social Media Platforms totally silence conservatives voices. We will strongly regulate, or close them down, before we can ever allow this to happen,” Trump said in a pair of additional posts on Twitter on Wednesday.

The president, a heavy user of Twitter with more than 80 million followers, added: “Clean up your act, NOW!!!!”

Republican Trump has an eye on the November election. “Big Tech is doing everything in their very considerable power to CENSOR in advance of the 2020 Election,” Trump tweeted on Wednesday night. “If that happens, we no longer have our freedom.”

STRONGEST THREAT YET

Trump’s threat is his strongest yet within a broader conservative backlash against Big Tech. Shares of both Twitter and Facebook fell on Wednesday.

Last year the White House circulated drafts of a proposed executive order about anti-conservative bias which never gained traction.

The Internet Association, which includes Twitter and Facebook among its members, said online platforms do not have a political bias and they offer “more people a chance to be heard than at any point in history.”

Asked during Twitter’s annual meeting on Wednesday why the company decided to affix the label to Trump’s mail-in ballot tweets, General Counsel Sean Edgett said decisions about handling misinformation are made as a group.

“We have a group and committee of folks who take a look at these things and make decisions on what’s getting a lot of visibility and traction …,” he said.

In recent years Twitter has tightened its policies amid criticism that its hands-off approach allowed fake accounts and misinformation to thrive.

Tech companies have been accused of anti-competitive practices and violating user privacy. Apple, Google, Facebook and Amazon face antitrust probes by federal and state authorities and a U.S. congressional panel.

Republican and Democratic lawmakers, along with the U.S. Justice Department, have been considering changes to Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, a federal law largely exempting online platforms from legal liability for the material their users post. Such changes could expose tech companies to more lawsuits.

Republican Senator Josh Hawley, a frequent critic of Big Tech companies, sent a letter to Twitter Chief Executive Jack Dorsey asking why the company should continue to receive legal immunity after “choosing to editorialize on President Trump’s tweets.”

        The latest discovery of unlawful activity by the FBI in the Flynn case clearly demonstrates that the TRUTH in our national media coverage is NON-EXISTENT when it comes to intentionally misleading ALL citizens, with their bias, to destroy conservatives, Republicans and President Trump with every opportunity. These recent discoveries also PROVE the same national media uses this bias to protect liberals and Democrats, with intentional misleading narrative, no matter what the situation. These social platforms are simply using the same anti-conservative slanted oversight that the National media has been practicing for decades!!

        If Obama would have been treated similarly, in a parallel universe knowing that a Democrat will NEVER experience the same 24/7 malfeasance, liberals and the ACLU would be in meltdown!! But, to be liberal and a Democrat it is MANDATORY to be a HYPOCRITE to embrace and promote their philosophies and ajenda.

      We shared a video on Facebook honoring Veterans for Memorial Day that showed caskets of fallen heroes. Facebook covered the video stating “it had violent content” so if someone wanted to view it they had to uncover it. There was nothing violent about it. It merely showed loved ones, and pets, at the casket either kissing, hugging or crying (pets laying in front of the casket). It also showed loved ones receiving the folded American Flag. That is why we celebrate Memorial Day!

      Stacey, by any chance have you researched the liars in the Obama-led group of liars like Comey, Hillary, Lisa Page et al who lied their way through a fake dossie written by a British spy to incriminate President Trump before a FISA court? Your disrespectful misnomer “Donnie” is crude, crass, and pejorative to say the least. Therefore, if you have no research to document all your lies about President Trump, I will give you a whole book of documentation on the wicked and lawless ex-President Obama who lied constantly to the American public and the Leftist liberal media covered his false narratives. He lied about Benghazi, Fast and Furious gun deal with the Mexican cartels, Hillary’s email fiasco, AG Eric Holder’s contempt, using the IRS to persecute Christian non-profits, accepting financial gifts from Planned Parenthood, etc. These are the DC elites who have lied as a habitual practice.

          Bob, I pay close attention to the news both on tv and in the newspapers. Besides President Obama being a hardcore abortionist which is the most disgusting, the 2 worst streaks of his lying streaks for me were Benghazi and his ACA. It was documented that he and his team knew within one hour while watching live drone video after the attack on Benghazi started that it was a planned attack. Yet he, Clinton, and Susan Rice lied on tv continuously for two weeks that it was because of a video that was already a year old. Obama even went before the UN General Assembly to state that the video was to blame for the attack. He never apologized. It was a slap in the face to our dead ambassador and the Navy Seal veterans who were defending him. His push for Obamacare was much longer in his lies which we listened to on tv almost daily: “If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor” and “If you like your insurance plan you can keep your plan.” When the ACA passed after some closed door and midnight deals and bribes, millions lost their their insurance because they didn’t meet all the big government specifications. He didn’t apologize, only that he was sorry if he had misrepresented the plan.

      You are saying Trump tells the truth. My problems with Trump is the companies he destroyed working construction. Not paying for services rendered. Is it fake news when he stated he likes to use other peoples money? How many bankruptcies? Companies using their money for materials and labor, then not be paid. I know people who have lost everything for not been paid for work they completed. You can take them to court which is a waste of time and money. You win your case, but how do you collect. You can’t.

        There is always a reason when people do not get paid if that is the truth. Have you checked to get names of these people or companies that did not get paid. And their recourse is to file a lien on the property and it is fairly in expensive to do that.
        Trump always filed chapter 11 or 13 bankruptcy which is basically reorganization so he can move forward without filingChapter 7 which is closing the business for good and creditors only getting penny’s on the dollar. This is all legal and within his rights to do so.
        Please quit listening to fake news and research your facts.

    These companies shouldn’t be blocking political opinions and we hear from their employees that their jobs are in jeopardy if they even hint of being Republican. As for Stacey, if you didn’t get your stimulus check, you might have received it on a prepaid credit card by mail and if you didn’t check closely-you might have tossed it. This happened because some taxpayers don’t have a checking account or bank account. Or maybe you’re just being facetious and stupid. Or you live in blue state like Wisconsin and can’t get an unemployment check because the narrow sighted Dem gov shut down the state and didn’t transfer some from the over 1600 employees staying at home but collecting full pay and bennies instead of having them trained and working around the clock shifts to the checks out.

I feel President Trump, to be politically correct, has opened our eyes to a lot of things being hidden from us to try to make our country Communist. Please let Anerica speak, bring Hod and the values of the Bible back into this country. Let the votes count not the electoral votes. We the people want a fair vote, no mail ins should be forced on those that can go vote.

    I also had my Facebook account locked. I voiced my opinion based on fact which went against the Democrat agenda. It reminds me of the. 1930s Germany.

    Generally, I am opposed to 90% of government control but something needs to be done.
    These companies are blatantly choosing sides in a political process. When dissenting
    opinions are silenced the First Amendment is being trampled. These companies are
    so huge that they can not longer hide under the banner of “private ownership”
    They are in fact, quasi public utilities and need regulating as such.

    For Don Wilson:
    As Florida began the process of recounting votes for the 2018 election cycle, Trump and his Republican cronies like Sen. Rick Scott pushed the unfounded theory that Democratic voter fraud was afoot. Scott worked vigilantly to stop the recount, even attempting to have voting machines and ballots impounded. It was a bogus claim, but recounting continued anyway. On Friday, Politico reported that Florida’s law enforcement agency, tasked with investigating this supposed fraud, found ZERO cases of voter fraud.

    For Larry Brule:
    If you consider the FACTS that Obama is neither a Muslim, nor a turd, your posting was LIES. So no wonder you’re shut down. Try telling the truth!

    For Jeffrey Wilkins:
    Same problem- the Coronavirus Pandemic is OBVIOUSLY not a hoax, so more lies…

    There is always a reason when people do not get paid if that is the truth. Have you checked to get names of these people or companies that did not get paid. And their recourse is to file a lien on the property and it is fairly in expensive to do that.
    Trump always filed chapter 11 or 13 bankruptcy which is basically reorganization so he can move forward without filingChapter 7 which is closing the business for good and creditors only getting penny’s on the dollar. This is all legal and within his rights to do so.
    Please quit listening to fake news and research your facts.

    This has nothing to do with OPINIONS, it has to do with FACTS. If you lie, they won’t put it out there. Unfortunately, Trump lies almost constantly, so being truthful is a real stretch for him….and, apparently, for many of his brainwashed followers…

    If you watched the main stream news that covers Trump in live interviews, you would know how much he lies. Then you have Hannity and his group repeating what Donald Trump tells them to. Like Rush L. He said back in February oh this is just like a cold nobody’s going to die. Please tell that to the 100,000 thousand people’s families who have died in just 3 months. Unfortunately it’s not over it’s not just gonna go away like a miracle there’s gonna be many more lives lost, which Trump is responsible for many of them. Now he wants to stifle Twitter and all the other social media’s because they want to put out a fact check notice so you can check for yourself. If they are able to shut the social medias down, we will be like all the communist countries that only let you hear what their leader says. Very sad for the USA.

But the facts are Biden influenced Ukraine to fire prosecutors going after the Bidens bad business deals on companys he was part of, using his son to be on board, for Biden giving them a billion dollars in aide, with millions in kick backs coming to biden!!

    Did anyone else notice General Counsel Sean Edgett didn’t answer the question, “WHY the company decided to affix the label to Trump’s mail-in ballot tweets?”
    Edgett answered the question HOW.
    I’d still like to know WHY.
    With all the other lies and accusations being posted by Dems, WHY President Trump’s post, which actually has some proof to support it?
    Will we start seeing more of these labels on the Dems posts now too?
    If not, you need to STOP being political, or lose your social media status.

    Trump is going off the rails now. He is the man I voted for but he is showing what a child he can be. He is giving votes to the Democrats every time he plays this childish crap. I haven’t moved so far as to vote Democrat but a few more tantrums like this and I am gone.

    In what way is it “unclear” how the President can “shut down” a privately held company? He has declared a National Emergency; he has the authority. BTW, there are private companies all over the country presently shut down in case you haven’t noticed. Furthermore, you declare, “without evidence” when evidence abounds that mail in voting has already been subject to gross errors, multiple frauds and admission thereto by perpetrators, including several arrests. Looks like it is you the author of this piece who is far behind the power curve. Or is your piece an opinion piece masquerading as news? 🎚️🗽⚓🇺🇸

    It’s a real travesty that twitter will allow CCP to trash the USA and then put down our president. They wouldn’t think of doing this to corrupt Obama. Lots of Biden’s tweets are lies. Just put them side by side and he proves it. But yet they allow anything they say. They allow the Russian collusion to still be verified by the left even though it’s been debunked. Hypocrites!

    […] Last Thursday Twitter added a “manipulated media” label to the ‘toddler video&#821… – which mocks CNN by humorously suggesting they would incite racial division by editing a video of a black toddler and a white toddler hugging, into a chase scene in which the white child is chasing the black one.
